hp 6500 printer

Post by houndhen » Mon Sep 12, 2011 23:20

Sabayon 6 kde 32 bit.

Not great at adding a printer in Linux. Coming from Ubuntu 10.10 gnome and Mepis 11 kde.

Did an internet search and a search of this forum. Didn't find anything that I noticed about an HP 6500 all-in-one.

I haven't been yet to HP and looked, but will.

Has anyone else dealt with this printer in Sabayon?

Thanks,
Harold
